EVE: Valkyrie video is short, but shows interesting gameplay

An EVE:Valkyrie gameplay video has been released, and it really looks like the type of title you’d see supporting VR tech. Have a look below, courtesy of AGB. The dogfighting title set in the EVE universe is slated for release on PC and PlayStation 4 and will support Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus.

    Damn that looks good.

    Can you imagine a Star Wars game like this though? With multiplayer.
    GodDAYUM it would be fun.

    I have so many mixed feelings about this.

    On the more negative side, just because I want to get that out of the way, I don’t like Eve. I’m okay with some sorts of PvP games, especially supportive co-op games where people can understand how disabilities can impact confidence. Some of those I’ve actually been really quite good at, too, when my anxieties don’t flare up.

    If this is PvP only, though, I’ll probably never play it. But if it’s single-player or co-op, I’m there. I know, I know, that makes me a horrible carebear.

    Though on the upside! Those cockpits are divine. They’re using holography, and honestly, why wouldn’t they? By the time we actually have spaceships we’re going to have eye implants anyway a la DX:HR, which will allow us to see holographic screens where there are none. But we’d see them as though they were real.

    And even Fallout, as backwards as Fallout tech is? Power armour is neurally controlled. What Fallout 3 weirdly started calling recon armour is actually under-armour, it’s what you wear under power armour for the armour itself to actually function. Now, what’s most notable about recon armour? It has that weird pipe-tube thing leading from the skull-cap to a computer on the back of the recon suit. That computer connects with the power armour.

    It’s neurally controlled.

    Now, Eve has neurally controlled ships, I believe, and that’s completely rad. I think this is why we’re not seeing CRT screens and flightsticks. That makes me love it. But the thing is is that if it’s PvP, it’s going to be filled with sociopathy and hatred, like Eve, and I’m just not going to want to play it.

    Though this has exactly the kinds of ships I like. IF it has single-player or PvE, I’m there, because I really dig the ships. I mean, this is the kind of space experience I’d like more. Though, in my case, I’d much prefer it be more along the lines of space exploration. Just being one with a small ship as I/it explores the cosmos, reaching out with sensors to find anything interesting, and investigating it. Sometimes there’d be combat, but not always, and I could run away if I was clever enough about it.

    The thing is is that I see spaceships of the future as just a human augmentation, a continuation of the self, rather than just a vehicle. Eve actually seems to understand that.
